Thanks Tom for reminding me what I have to be grateful for.....I don't feel like I have as many wits about me as I did a year ago, but maybe they are wiser ones! wishes for the new year to all!

Really... I feel cleared than I was when we got the diagnosis in June of 2008! You just need to follow Mimis Best Practices (see below) and keep having your meds adjusted.



My disclaimer:
I'm not a professional in this area, only a person with AD that cares about others and can express myself yet. Diagnosed at age 58 in Stage 5, now appear firmly in Stage 4 for now- wonderful meds! I 'm 62 now..

We encourage you to call the Alzheimer's Association's 24/7 Helpline

1-800-272-3900 . Ask for a Care Consultant who will be available

Helpful hints for slowing the progression:

  1. Get Early detection
  2. Start the required drug therapy
  3. Avoid stress
  4. Mediterranean diet with antioxidants and Omega 3
  5. Mental and physical exercise

LATER... Tom

You're right, Tom.  We made it through another year!  Wow, I'm getting old.


Well done everyone. 


Thanks for all your support.  I couldn't do it without all of you!
